Psalm 66

For the choir director; a song; a psalm.

Shout happily to Elohim, all the earth!
Make music to praise the glory of his name.
    Make his praise glorious.
Say to Elohim,
    “How awe-inspiring are your deeds!
    Your power is so great that your enemies will cringe in front of you.
The whole earth will worship you.
    It will make music to praise you.
        It will make music to praise your name.” Selah
Come and see what Elohim has done—
    his awe-inspiring deeds for Adam’s descendants.
He turned the sea into dry land.
    They crossed the river on foot.
        We rejoiced because of what he did there.
He rules forever with his might.
    His eyes watch the nations.
        Rebels will not be able to oppose him. Selah

Thank our Elohim, you nations.
    Make the sound of his praise heard.
He has kept us alive
    and has not allowed us to fall.
10 You have tested us, O Elohim.
    You have refined us in the same way silver is refined.
11 You have trapped us in a net.
    You have laid burdens on our backs.
12 You let people ride over our heads.
    We went through fire and water,
        but then you brought us out and refreshed us.

13 I will come into your temple with burnt offerings.
    I will keep my vows to you,
14 the vows made by my lips and spoken by my own mouth
    when I was in trouble.
15 I will offer you a sacrifice of fattened livestock for burnt offerings
    with the smoke from rams.
    I will offer cattle and goats. Selah

16 Come and listen, all who fear Elohim,
    and I will tell you what he has done for me.
17 With my mouth I cried out to him.
    High praise was on my tongue.
18 If I had thought about doing anything sinful,
    Adonay would not have listened to me.
19 But Elohim has heard me.
    He has paid attention to my prayer.

20 Thanks be to Elohim,
    who has not rejected my prayer
        or taken away his mercy from me.
